Wood, 33, was briefly engaged to Manson, 52, in 2010.

Manson has been contacted for comment.

Following Wood’s allegations and those of four other women, Loma Vista Recordings said it was no longer working with Manson.

It said in a statement: “In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately.

“Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”

Manson’s most recent album released through Loma Vista Recordings was 2020’s We Are Chaos, which reached number seven in the UK charts and eight in the US.

Manson found fame in the 1990s and became known for his distinctive appearance.
